“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel,”  Maya Angelou said.

In this solo episode, I share 5 quality of care stories.

Even though my wife Donna passed away in 2013, I’ll never forget how these people made me feel. Stories about two doctors, plus Toni the nurse, and Maggie the speech therapist.

And how the Head of Neurology at Ohio State University Medical Center finally learned, from yours truly, why you should never serve a dying patient the hospital roast beef supper.

This is dedicated to the selfless medical professional caregivers and support teams who don’t settle for average performance.
